AVA recalls Wyeth milk formula( ST dated 20 Feb 09)..but a check with NTUC,and other provision shops still selling the productsâ€¦recall is becos milk contains lutein,a type of food colouring,although is a permitted food coloring but its use as a nutrient in infant formula,follow-up formula and growing up milk has not been officially establisned.
Luetin are yellow carotenoid pigments found in plants,animal fat and egg yolk;it is used as an anti-oxidant and for blue light absorption.
The AVA sent a circular on Feb 13 asking importers and distributors to recall Wyethâ€™s range of infant and follow up formula containing lutein with immediate effect for destruction or re -export to the country where the product was importedâ€¦yet these shops are still selling as at today
Will take note of it....thanks for sharing!
Managed to call AVA today. According to them if we are having Wyeth products at home (e.g. Promise Gold, etc..), do a check in its ingredients for Lutein. If this is listed/exists, return the product back to the Retailer (e.g. NTUC, Giant, etc..).
who are dos who sell parallel imports de?
